Programming experience, affinity with mathematics and applied research, motivation to learn 



Computer Vision & Data Science Applied Research

At Computer Vision, the focus is image acquisition and image processing, at Data Science, the focus is recognizing patterns in that information (Big Data) with the help of, among others, Deep Learning.  The professorship Computer Vision & Data Science of NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences provides research and education in the field of Computer Vision & Data Science. This is done by applying advanced AI & Data Science techniques to real-world vision problems, in a close collaboration between staff, students and clients. 

Within the professorship in Computer Vision and Data Science you can follow a minor or master’s program or do an internship or do your graduation project. During your study or internship you will be working together with an experienced team of engineers, researchers and professors (of applied sciences) on challenging state-of-the-art applied research projects in the area of Computer Vision and Data Science. You learn to develop innovative applications of Computer Vision & Data Science. As student in our research lab you have access to state-of-the-art equipment like a mini super-computer, 3D cameras, high speed cameras, hyper- and multispectral cameras, surround cameras, industrial cameras, many types of optics, lighting, JetBots and a high-performance computing cluster.

On this website you will find more information about our group and the projects we are working on. If you like more information, please feel free to contact us, you will find us in G2.016 (Rengerslaan 10 in Leeuwarden) and can reach us by mail
